Gerry Francis has his say on current Leeds United situation

The QPR legend is aghast at events at Elland Road.

Yesterday was yet another tumultuous day in the life of Leeds United. After it looked like being a done thing, Massimo Cellino selling the club to the Leeds Fans United group after admitting he was ready to sell up at Elland Road.

But then came the shock revelation yesterday that Cellino, who still wants to sell the club, has ruled out a sale to the takeover group.

It was news that caught many by surprise, despite the topsy-turvy nature of life at Elland Road.

Yesterday even saw Gerry Francis put his two cents in. The former QPR player will know of the previously great Leeds eras and he is clearly not pleased to see them where they are now.

He told Sky Sports News yesterday (04/11/2015):

"You don't know what is going on there do you?

"It's such a wonderful club Leeds, such a big club. Obviously I remember the Don Revie days and times when they were in Europe and winning FA Cups. One of the top teams in the country.

He then went on to hint that Cellino was at fault:

"Massive club, massive support and can't seem to actually get the club going in the right direction. One minute you're selling it the next minute you're not.

"Six managers gone already. If i was a supporter I wouldn't really know what's going on at Leeds United."

Leeds are currently in the headlines all the time, hence why they are often discussed by pundits on numerous occasions, but at the moment they are in the headlines for all the wrong reasons.

If Leeds could be sorted out off the pitch then the club could go on to become one of the top club's in England once again.

But as Francis states, the direction needs to be there.
